Chris Tillman pitched the Orioles to a split of Friday's doubleheader against the Rays, allowing just one run on four hits over eight strong innings in the nightcap.

Tillman struck out a pair and walked one on the evening. The only damage against him was a solo homer off the bat of James Loney in the second inning. He'll bring a 4.18 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 62/40 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Rangers.

Chris Tillman threw seven scoreless innings as the Orioles shut out the Yankees 8-0 on Sunday.

Tillman allowed four hits and four walks over his seven innings of work, striking out two. He's sandwiched four quality starts around one clunker in his last five outings, and the win Sunday moved him to 6-4 in 16 starts. Tillman will take a 4.45 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into the weekend's matchup with the Rays.
Jun 22 - 6:47 PM

Chris Tillman allowed three runs on eight hits over seven innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

The right-hander managed to turn in a quality start despite not having his best stuff. Tillman didn't walk a batter but failed to register a strikeout, either. Still, he's now turned in two decent starts after a rough stretch in late May and early June. Tillman will try to keep the stretch going against the Yankees on Saturday.

Chris Tillman allowed just a single run over six innings of work but took the loss against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Tillman dealt with two rain delays, and the right-hander danced through the raindrops himself, working out of trouble all evening. The Red Sox twice loaded the bases with nothing to show for it, including once with nobody out, and at least one runner reached base in each of the first four innings. In all, Tillman gave up seven hits and three walks, striking out three. The loss was his first since May 11, but he carries a subpar 4.91 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into a tough matchup with the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Jun 10 - 11:30 PM

Chris Tillman was battered around but got the no-decision, allowing five runs in an inning of work in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

Surprisingly, it wasn't even Tillman's worst start of the season, as he had allowed eight runs in an inning to the Pirates on May 21. The right-hander allowed six hits -- including a two-run home run to Michael choice -- walked three, and struck out one. Tillman has flashed dominance at times this season, but he has a 5.20 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP on the season. He'll try to lower both in his next start at home against the Red Sox.
Jun 5 - 11:31 PM

Chris Tillman's next start will come on Saturday against the Athletics.

The Orioles simply want to give the right-hander some extra rest. Tillman tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday versus the Astros.
Jun 1 - 1:15 PM

Chris Tillman tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Orioles' defeat of the Astros.

It was a good bounceback for Tillman, who got lit up for six runs in 5 2/3 innings Monday by the Brewers. He carved his way easily through the Houston lineup on Saturday, yielding only four total hits before exiting with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. Tillman will carry a 5-2 record, 4.63 ERA, and 1.40 WHIP into his next outing at home against the A's.
May 31 - 7:11 PM

Chris Tillman was knocked around for six runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Brewers on Monday.

Tillman has allowed 12 runs on 13 hits and seven walks in 6 2/3 innings over two starts since his 117-pitch shutout victory on May 16. Perhaps his recent groin soreness is still an issue. His ERA now stands at 4.69 for the year. Assuming he feels healthy, he'll get the Astros next in Houston this weekend.
May 26 - 6:12 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Chris Tillman (groin) remains on schedule to start on Monday in Milwaukee.

Tillman is dealing with some groin soreness, but he threw his regular bullpen session Friday with no issues. The righty was rocked his last time out, so the Orioles will keep a close eye on him.
May 23 - 4:37 PM

Chris Tillman's next scheduled start on Monday could be pushed back due to a slight groin issue.

Tillman first felt the groin issue during his shutout last week, and it seems likely that it affected him when he was blasted for eight runs -- six earned -- over an inning of work in his last outing. It doesn't at this point sound like the disabled list is under consideration, but the Orioles might need a spot starter for Monday.
May 23 - 12:51 PM

Chris Tillman was hammered for eight runs (six earned) in an inning of work but got the no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.

The Pirates were hitting Tillman when he was near the strike zone and taking pitches when he wasn't, a recipe for failure for anyone. Tillman surrendered six hits, walked three, and struck out one as he watched his ERA balloon to 4.21. Not exactly the follow-up to last week's complete game shutout that the Orioles had in mind. Tillman will attempt to pick up his fifth win on the road against the Brewers next.
May 21 - 10:58 PM

Chris Tillman tossed a complete game shutout as the Orioles defeated the Royals on Friday.

Tillman had an easy night against the Royals' anemic offense, scattering five hits and a walk while striking out three. It's the second complete game and the first shutout of Tillman's major league career. Tillman continues to post good results despite a pedestrian ability to miss bats, now carrying a 3.34 ERA with a 4-2 record. He'll face the Indians at home next.
May 16 - 10:51 PM

Chris Tillman (groin) has been cleared to start on Friday after throwing a bullpen session Wednesday.

Tillman has been dealing with some groin soreness, but it doesn't sound like it will be a concern going forward. The right-hander holds a 3.97 ERA and 40/19 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings this season.
May 14 - 11:38 AM

Chris Tillman has some minor groin discomfort.

The Orioles aren't sure whether he's going to be able to take his next turn in the starting rotation. Tillman allowed three runs over five innings in a loss to the Astros on Sunday.
